Véronik created a luxuriously soft and snuggly stole by working with Loft on a large needle and lace-blocking the finished fabric. Simple garter stitch is transformed into a pillowy, cloudlike stole that is equally at home wrapped around the shoulders or bundled under a winter coat as a long scarf. The charted half of the stole features a graphic lace snowflake motif, while the second half is filled with a random eyelet“snow”pattern. Have fun embracing your inner knitting spontaneity – no two stoles will be exactly the same!
- Approximately 798 yards of fingering weight wool yarn
- 24½ stitches & 51 rows = 4″ in garter stitch with Gauge Needle, before blocking
- 18 stitches & 24 rows = 4″ in garter stitch with Gauge Needle, after lace-blocking
- Gauge Needle: One pair of straight needles (or circulars, if preferred) in size needed to obtain gauge listed
- Suggested Size: 5½ mm (US 9)
- 15″ wide, 84″ long; measurements taken from relaxed fabric after blocking.
Note that this project features an open-gauge fabric.
